Vintage Christmas decor at its finest.

As I gravitate more towards the not so bright color palettes, I’m instantly pulled back when I see homes like this. The home of this young family in London is a gorgeous backdrop for their whimsical holiday decor. That tree makes my insides smile
How is it already the second week of December and I haven’t posted one thing about Christmas?!? Well, per tradition, I put up all my decorations and lights (which I’ve scaled down to one box) the Friday after Thanksgiving. I decided to go with a baby tree this year, which was soooo much easier than getting a normal size tree, and I’m about halfway done with my Christmas shopping (thanks Amazon!). All of this leaves me much more time to craft and get fancy with my gift wrapping. I heart you Christmastime.

All I can think about is how much I will be gorging myself this coming Turkey Day. I’m a bit more excited this year compared to any other year because I will be making the entire Thanksgiving meal, including my very first turkey. The menu has been set and the first grocery run was a success. Time to tidy the house and get everything cozy. Here are some interiors to inspire…
Still lots to do, but wanted to share a few photos of the Sintra project I’ve been consulting on.
Here’s the back area of the lounge and this space looks significantly better! We removed all the wall tiles (so many wall tiles in this house!), replaced the tile flooring with wood and papered this small alcove.
This is a hallway in one of the suites. We replaced the tile flooring with wood and removed all the wall tiles. Added a chair rail to give the hallway some architectural interest and gave it a fresh white coat of paint. The chandelier needs to be swooped so it’s centered in the hallway and it still needs its shades.
Here we have the communal kitchen. We removed all the tile and replaced it with a staggered subway tile. We ‘re going all white with white cabinets and a wood countertop to add some warmth. Tile needs to be grouted and cabinets are waiting for their doors and toe.
This is a massive, antique cabinet that will live in the kitchen and it got the re-loving treatment with a few coats of robin’s egg blue paint.
More to come!
